    Default 1 Year aniversary Ideas

    Hey guys, can you help me out here? Mine and Liz's 1 year is coming up in july and I have no idea on what to do! Ive already done the bouquet of roses for her birthday and valentines, build a bears for x-mas and valentines so im kinda trying to see if theres anything else than roses and bears.

    She doesnt have a car so that complicates things a bit. But I will take any suggestions cuz its better than what I got right now lol.

    Whatever you do, don't do what we did on our first anniversaries....when we started dating, we went ice skating and then to a Predators hockey game, that seems tame, except both of us almost broke our necks and were sore for a few days. Other than that a great day.

    Then on our 1 year wedding anniversary, we were in Gatlinburg, TN, we got up early and had breakfast at a pancake house...then everything went down hill, I spent the rest of the day except for about an hour in bed or hovering over a trash can as whatever made me sick that morning decided to go back from wence it came. That not only ruined the whole day, but I spent the next day in pain from vomiting like 9000 times.

    Overall, if you avoid ICE and pancake houses, anything you do together should be memorable. The whole point is to be together celebrating a milestone. Whether you go on a picnic, take an all day drive, or just go out and eat the fact that you guys are together makes the whole day memorable. Any flowers are nice of course and get her something unexpected, like something she has mentioned along the way but has never gotten for herself, doesnt have to be jewelry, although thats the pinnacle, but me for example, my wife has been wanting a shower cd player so out of the blue I got her one today. That not only serves as a gift, but also tells her that you LISTEN to what she says/wants/needs and what not.

    Whatever you do, just have fun, its a big day and hopefully not the last anniversary for you guys so make it memorable. Oh ya and brush up on what happened last year in case she asks...which if she's like most women she will...so don't be caught off guard

    If I were you I would focus more on something more
    meaningful rather than giving a pricey gift or such.

    Try a mix CD of songs that have special meaning to
    you two (or even ones you like) and write your
    own "liner notes" for each song on why you picked
    that song and how it relates to her or the relationship.

    Then just take her out and do something you both
    genuinely like to do.

    Good luck, bro.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    If you haven't already, give her a heart-shaped necklace. It doesn't have to be diamonds -- it's the thought that counts.

    Good luck!

    Here's something to try:

    1. Bring her breakfast in bed on your anniversary. Put 1 red rose in a vase.

    2. Pack a picnic, grab her favourite CDs to play in the car and take her out... don't tell her where you are going.

    3. Find a waterfall and set up the picnic near the base, but keep at a fair distance away so that only a faint amount of mist 'showers' you. Just spend some quiet time away from civilization. If there isn't a waterfall in your vicinity, then find a hill with a spectacular view.

    4. Of course, be romantic, but not too sappy.

    When you make her feel this special the evening will be even more special, not, "oh let's have the obligatory romp session to celebrate our 1st year together."

    Good luck, have fun, and happy anniversary!

    I love this idea. It doesn't have to be a concrete gift because what will be important to Liz is the memories. For her to look back and remember the time you put into making it a special day (and the creativity you used) will probably be the most important thing (it would be for me). I'd much rather spend a day making beautiful memories than opening a gift. Show her just how much you enjoy spending time with her and simply being in her presence (and a CD of ya'lls favorite songs and a heart-felt letter would be a great bonus). Have fun coming up with something unique!

    Yeah im trying to think of a few places where I could take her. Ive thought of a lake that we both like to go to and a park that is really nice. But as far as not getting her a gift, im very tempted to. Since about last x-mas, Ive been wanting to give her a customized promise ring and I figured that next month would be a good time to do it but at the same time, im also deciding if I want to give it to her this x-mas.

    Im not very good at packing picnics so I figured I would go pick something up from subway or something but that wouldnt be too romantic either lol. And I am trying to avoid what you call the "obligatory romp session" next month because I want me and her to remember the whole day instead of just romping around. But im going to try to be as romantic as I can because when I am romantic with her, she tends to be distracted lol. I cant blame her though cuz thats who she is but it does get a little frustrating. Putting her CD's in my truck though is a good idea cuz shes always wanting me to listen to todays punk and naturally I cant get into but im trying lol

    My wife and I gave each other watches fo our first anniversary.
    Nothing really expensive but something that's worn everyday.
    I do think of her every time I look to see what time it is.

    I can only imagine what Phatie thinks of that

    What did you do on your first date? Was it something that would really bring back that day and make it really special if you repeated the date? Just a thought.

    hmmm...lets see our first date was seeing the longest yard. Weve gone to a lot of movies since then and there was actually a period of time when we were burnt out on seeing movies.
